Daisy: A Life Cycle Series builds a colorful connection between the reader and the stages of a growing plant, cycling through germination, growth, and maturity at a level school-age children can get excited about. This gentle story also reflects on the life-death-life cycle which all living things undergo. The stages are accurately relayed through the descriptive feelings of the plant. Daisy makes a great learning tool for the classroom, or a wonderful bedtime tale for parents who want to teach their children through family storytime. The book features gorgeous illustrations from artist Greg White, and this third edition from Crescent Renewal Books-an imprint of Who Chains You Publishing-is perfect for ages 7 and up.
